colouring for adults – does it ease stress?

This week was spent doing a spot of research to help with my book. Whilst checking out the web for anti-stress tactic I came across this. A colouring book for busy adults.


Apparently, working with your hands is a great way of getting rid of stress and this book will help promote mindfulness, help you focus and will hone in your creativity.

According to the Huffington Post, books that encourage colouring for adults are actually outselling cookery books in France. So they must be doing something for the stressed out and frazzled. Personally, anything that gets you to shun your iPhone for more than 10 minutes and helps you escape is always going to be a winner.

Any of my readers still indulge in occasional colouring? Does it work?
